Art Met Fashion | It Was Intense

In a hurricane of flower petals, high-gloss acrylic paints, rope, and latex, Art Meets Fashion‘s 2015 showcase has come to a dizzying, fabulous close. As we mentioned a few weeks back, the fantastic organization, who’s mission it is to “support the artistic community throughout


A Chat with Mayor Becker

We at cityhomeCOLLECTIVE always relish a round table discussion. The opportunity to gather a few good minds gives us a certain thrill, so we were over the moon when Mayor Ralph Becker made himself available–and we were able to partake in–an old fashioned Q&A.


Thayer Coggin Road Show | Forsey’s

In a spot of kismet many years ago, two men got together and spun a collaboration the likes of which would forever change the face of modern design. Thayer Coggin and Milo Baughman, furniture maker and designer, respectively, have undeniably shaped the mid-century modern


Art Meets Fashion | Talent + Passion

Though we’re always game for a horn-toot for Art Meets Fashion–a group who’s mission it is to “support the artistic community throughout the year with lecture series, documentary and photojournalism projects, on-going creative business support, and culturally engaging events”–we feel especially apt to ballyhoo


Place of Worship | If You Build It

“The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson Salt Lake City (and much of Utah, for that matter) is a garden–a terrarium where transplants and natives live as a harmonious whole. This salty state is a magnificent one,


#DareToImagine | Claiming Our Future

We’re all for the expansion of this fair city. Where some see outsiders moving in and the terrifying notion of change, we see the opportunity for a rap sesh with a few fresh faces, both “new in town” and “established as hell”. One of


Equal Rights & Fabulous Nights

Well. The 2015 Allies for Equality Dinner/Gala/Fundraiser was, in a word, fanfreakingtabulous. What a night. Time of our lives (hangover of our lives). The Allies Dinner–a gathering that seeks to celebrate the preceding year’s victories in equality, highlight the work still to be done, and


SLFS | Vamos a Cuba!

Adventure! Intrigue! Hot pink ’57 Chevys! For decades, Cuba has long been a land of mystery, to which we can attribute some of the worlds most sought-after cigars and the soulful tunes of Ricky Ricardo. Every December, SLC’s own Salt Lake Film Society takes


SL Modern | Let There Be Light

Our COLLECTIVE headquarters houses more than a few architecture aficionados, design die-hards, and homies of historical preservation–in fact, our CEO sits squarely on the Salt Lake Modern committee. To say we’ve got a bit of a thing for buildings would be a gross understatement.


Beer & Ballet | Part Deux

‘Round these parts, we have a certain appreciation for putting two seemingly-clashing concept together to make a beautiful whole: chicken ‘n’ waffles, real estate and design, Russell Crowe and Les Mis (it just works). Thus, Ballet West’s Beer & Ballet is striking our fancy oh-so-well.


Design Week, Pt. 1 | Mr. Draplin

Hear ye, hear ye! The fifth annual Salt Lake Design Week is upon us, y’all, and just like last year (and the year before, and the year before), there be promises aplenty in stellar representation of design in all her facets–graphic, product, fashion, architecture,
